My Job

Proyecto Mariposa Founder
During the week I get to help adults find their passion, identify their strengths and learn new stuff (how to listen to others, how to give amazing presentations, and how to talk to others when emotions are tough).
During the weekend, I get to spend time with awesome girls and women called Mariposas. We talk, learn and grow together. I love what I do!
